Bleeding : Bleeding after absence of your period for greater than one year needs to be investigated. Your gyneclogist will need to perform a biopsy of your uterus called an endometrial biopsy (emb) in order to look for changes in your uterus that could account for your bleeding. Also a pelvic ultrasound may be done in order to look for fibroids (benign tumors of the uterus) that frequently cause bleeding.
All the best.
